Abstract: Blood flow measurement plays a vital role to identify and diagnosis of various diseases in different organs of the body. Depending on the change in geometry of aorta, blood flow rate will change depending on non- Newtonian fluid characteristics. Hence in this paper simulation of the aorta is designed and modulated using ANSYS 18.1 to calculate the shear stress of the thoracic aorta to identify aneurysm (weakening of aorta) which is major cause for coronary artery disease.
